    Not possible - at any price.

    You can convert a monophonic audio source to midi, but once you get any sort of polyphony in the source, conversion can not be done. Any thought of converting your favourite song to midi should be abandoned now.

    Check the forum archiives - there a ton of threads about this subject.

    Ooops - so he did. I'm beginning to feel like one of Pavlov's dogs - sorry about that.

    To turn a midi file into an audio file, all you need is a suitable audio recorder to record the audio out of whatever sound engine (synth, soft-synth, hardware module, etc.) you are using.

    Following that process, there's loads of software to convert the file to an MP3.

    Many cards feature loopback recording. Select MIDI/SW Synth in the Record Properties applet if available.

    Midi to MP3 shouldn't be a problem.
    try out http://www.midi2wav.com/
    but it's just a demo version

    mp3/wav to midi is not really possible.

    convert midi to wav first.. i suggest WINGROOVE
    download is free from a search

    and then WAV to MP3 it should work.

    the only problem, is that the result will be different on each computer. In fact, it's the soundcard who play the music, with the instruments sounds that the manufacturer choose.
    So a midi-->mp3 done with a cheaper sound card, will be really awfull in comparison with a midi-->mp3 done with a Sound Blaster live/Audigy

    Bye, good luck

    This is the thing.
    An midi is not a typical sound file, like an MP3. It is instructions for the computer to play a song. The only way to covert a Midi is to record it. A wav. file is typicaly the format that you would want to chose to record to. However there are programs that allow you to convert directly. I use a program by Creative that came stock on my premade computer.

    What do you mean? They work fine - maybe your problem is you fail to understand what it is you are trying to achieve. All the information above is true - to one extent or another.

    A midi file is a set of performance instructions, it contains no sounds of its own. The sounds are generated by something else - a hardware sound module, synthesiser, soundcard or, increasingly, these days, a software synthesiser. The hardware/software used has a big bearing on the actual sounds produced and you could argue until the cows come home as to which is the better, but that's the way it works.

    If you want to turn a midi into some sort of audio format, then you need to record the audio output of whatever deviceis creating the sounds. You may need to subsequently turn that file into another format, depending on your personal needs.

    If you want to make the tune shorter, you have two options, edit the audio file or use a sequencer to edit the midi file before you convert it to audio.

    The only information I can't be definitive on is for poking the resultant file (in whatever format) into a mobile phone. To me, this is a huge waste of midi's potential and it has no attraction for me. Personally, I couldn't care less what noise my phone makes, I just need to know that someone is trying to get hold of me.

    However, I'm sure there are others here who do know about this step in the process.

    Midi to Wav then MP3 sounds good, are the results consistent and better than Midi to MP3 direct?
    Thanks

    You didn't read my first post in this thread - where I incorrectly thought this was the original question.
